You ROCK!!!!

I love these new guys from Bugaboo. Here's one ready to rock out in style. I used the Grunge Me stamp set from Papertrey ink to create the background. The sentiment was also from that set. What a perfect match for this image.

Feeling Woolen

This week is a colour theme at Catch The Bug. Woolen hues are the choice of the week.

I chose to use Lil Dude here. I created the splattered background using a Papertrey Ink Grunge stamp set.

Remember, you don't have to use a BUGABOO image to join in but we'd love to see you use them and see what yopu create. Head on over to Catch The Bug to see all the DT inspiration and to check out the challenge details and prizes.

Tutorial Wednesday

It's my turn to share with you a tutorial for Catch The Bug's Tutorial Wednesday!!!
I've decided to show you my quick and easy method for a rocker card. I love circular cards but I hate it when they have a straight edge at the fold.

Firstly, find a circle nestability which fits your envelope.

Cut a piece of plain cardstock and your backing colour.

Fold the plain one in half.

Use a strong glue/tape to attach the base colour to the rocker. I like to use a glue gel so that I can manouver it a bit.

And there we have it - nice and easy and adds a bit of fun too when you see the card rocking back and forth.

I'm going to enter this card into the Make It Monday challenge for this week.
